Pure American Gun Billboard In Chicago

Symbols shape the way we view our culture. They mold our perceptions of our selves. We see so many images that we sometimes don’t realize that there are still defining cultural symbols.

What symbols define our collective American experience? Apple Pie? A Jesus fish? An assault rifle? Clearly a group of Americans believe that their story, their narrative, is given deeper meaning by the symbol of an assault rifle.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
